John has been at St Mark’s since he was in small trousers, he even went to school in Henley Community Hall. Churchwardens are legally responsible for both the maintenance of the buildings and the worship that takes place inside them. As well as grafting to keep on top of repairs and organising stuff, John is captain of St Mark’s Boys Brigade and, blessed with the Peter Pan gene he’s younger at 70 than most of the boys at 17!
David Ince first came to St Mark’s Church through the choir and hasn’t looked back since. With a professional background in peripatetic music teaching, he’s a lynch-pin of the musical life of the church and has recently taken on this extra challenge of being churchwarden. What kept him busiest before that was being Chair of the bench of Justices of the Peace and ‘the voice of Trent Bridge Cricket’ and the Mansfield and Ashfield Echo – news media for people who are blind.
